Thirteen guests arrived at dinner at the actor’s house. It was to be a particularly unlucky evening for the mild-mannered Reverend Stephen Babbington, who choked on his cocktail, went into convulsions and died. But when his martini glass was sent for chemical analysis, there was no trace of poison – just as Poirot had predicted. Even more troubling for the great detective, there was absolutely no motive.

Mrs McGinty’s Dead starts with the unusual (for Agatha Christie) premise that the murder victim is already dead and the “murderer” convicted and awaiting execution. A senior policeman does not believe justice has been done and asks Poirot to investigate.  After this, it follows the usual Christie pattern of false trails, and a bewildering cast of characters.

A murder on that favourite Christie mode of transport - a train. For once, there is not a bewildering cast of suspects and like me, you may guess the murderer well before the end, but it's good fun.  Maurice Denham makes for a very charming, less French Poirot than most other characterisations.

It is 1920. Britain is still recovering from the loss of virtually an entire generation in the Great War, and those who survive have physical and mental scars from which they may never recover. One such is a nun apparently traumatised by scenes of horror she has witnessed at the front. But what precisely did she see? An ambitious doctor and a pioneering psychologist try to restore the woman's sanity, but in the process they uncover something much more sinister.

A rather routine Christie tale. Hercule Poirot is on holiday on an island off the coast of Devon, surrounded by the usual cast of suspects, including the flirtatious actress Arlena Marshall who - quelle surprise - everybody knows and has cause to dislike. As night follows day, Arlena is found murdered and Poirot investigates. Despite a superior cast, the story is typical formulaic Christie.
